Currently Project + Project Life

I’ve decided to tackle a digital version of Project Life, and start making family yearbooks for us. I haven’t decided if I’m going to do it weekly or monthly yet, but I am totally obsessed with collecting things for it, so I’m super excited.

This is a sample of one of the kits available:

I’ve also gotten hooked on the Currently project too, since it goes right along with Project Life.

It’s a little 3×4 card that you can get here and it just says what you’re currently doing. Its a super easy way to document your week and you can either use it digitally or print it out. They’re free, and you can buy more if you like. I’ll be posting my weekly “Currently” pics starting this Friday.


Look out for my Project Life spreads too!

::phew:: Who knew I’d end up this crafty?!


Sizzix Texture Boutique- New Embosser!

I haven’t had much time alone in the spare room to craft much lately, but I realized I hadn’t posted about my newest treat. My husband let me buy an embossing machine as my valentine’s day gift 🙂

I bought the Sizzix Texture Boutique starter kit, and it was $32 on Amazon, and came with a bunch of stuff, cards included and cardstock. I did SO much research, and was almost leaning towards the Cricut Cuttlebug but then I realized I probably wasn’t going to be doing embossing on anything bigger/wider than 5″ since what I really like is cards, and also this machine was half the price! For $40 I ended up getting 2 extra embossing folders (cuttlebug folders I’d been eyeing for a WHILE), and they fit just perfectly. It even fits a 5×7 Folder which I’ve already used to make envelopes and I love, because that’s probably the biggest size I’ll be doing.

Anyway, here are some pics of the new toy and a few things I’ve done with it. 🙂 The envelopes are for an invitation we made.

Beginnings of a Birthday Card

Today since I’m off work, I plan to get lots of things done around the house…. AND my mother in law’s birthday card. I originally saw this card idea by Jacqueline DeGroot on Pintrest, pinned, repinned and copied about a million times, but I was finally able to get the original source, (although unable to find it on her blog).

This is my inspiration:

And here’s what I’m going with:
I hope my mother in law likes it! Now, if I only had some spanish sentiment stamps!

A Little Hut – Freebie Every 24 Hours

I am sure people know these well known paper craft designers, but whenever I run across someone who does beautiful amazing work, I love sharing. I recently found Patricia Zapata’s website, A Little Hut and I am just completely head over heels in love with her stuff.

She’s giving a free cut file away every 24 hours until Easter. I HIGHLY recommend book marking her page!

My first invitations.

I am in charge of several things for our church and I just love using my Cameo to make little projects.

We are starting a couples life group in a few weeks and my friend asked me to make some personalized invitations for some couples.

Since I have never done invitations, I bought the Elegant Invitations bundle from SVG Cuts. It’s so easy to use and has like 5 different beautiful templates. I used the Classic template for this card and sized it down so I could make more than 1 per 12×12 piece of cardstock.
